Sweat-shop: We used to have this recurring nightmare: It's Christmas morning, and we haven't bought a single damn present for anyone. Not one. In a panic, we grab crap around the house, frantically wrapping it in sheets of newspaper shedding ink: chipped, ugly cat figurine for mom, half-drunk bottle of Zinfandel for dad. Pathetic. And some years? It was a nightmare we lived, or almost.

Fortunately, Stephanie Im's foodie gift guide at Lick My Spoon offers suggestions that can help avert anxiety sweats. CSA boxes, Jessie Steele aprons, cooking classes ― they're things we generally wouldn't think of gifting, but which make perfect sense. Especially two weeks out from Xmas, before the fog of panic buying sets in. Check it out ― calmly ― here.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
